THE HUT PROJECT CONVERSATION 6

JS: This sounds like it could be the beginning of a manifesto (perhaps something quite strict)? Yet you seem to suggest the value of either getting intentionally lost or importance of chance. Is this a contradiction?

THP: One should have wit, but not want to have it. Go deep or go home.

JS: Do you think that the lens is manipulative?

THP: To be or not to be, that’s not really a question. Cinema is truth 50 times a second

THE HUT PROJECT CONVERSATION 3

JS: True! I like this idea of recognising the boundaries of our own personal experience. One of the pieces of work which I came across recently which makes this idea very explicit is Mehmet Sander’s ‘Single Space’ (above). I was wondering if you have a reaction to this piece in reference to the work that you are developing for Assembly?

THP: Long ago, I pointed to the lens and said the trouble was here!
